The diffraction of a plane scalar wave by a hard elliptic cylinder is 
investigated theoretically. The field is obtained and expanded asymptotically 
for incident wavelengths small compared with the dimensions of the generating 
ellipse. The method of obtaining the asymptotic expansion of the diffracted 
field parallels the methods of reference [9] • However^ additional term^ in 
the asymptotic expansion are obtained. In reference [9] it was shown that 
the asymptotic expansion of the diffracted field was in agreement with the 
geometrical theory of diffraction as presented in references [h^ and [5] . 
The additional terms in the field obtained in this paper we Interpret geo- 
metrically as higher order corrections to the decay exponents and diffraction 
coefficients as given in reference [5] . Finally,, we obtain additional terms 
to those given in reference [8] for the asymptotic expansion of the field 
diffracted by a parabolic cylinder. We then show that these higher order 
corrections have the same geometrical interpretation as in the case of the 
elliptic cylinder. The determination of these corrections permits the 
geometric theory to be extended to longer wavelengths than could be treat- 
ed previously. Similar results are obtained for soft cylinders. Then the 
field on a hard convex cylinder of arbitrary shape is determined asymptotically 
by a quite different method - that of asymptotically solving an Integral 
equation. The result is found to coincide with the generalization based 
upon the solution for the elliptic cylinder.

1. Introduction 

When a wave is incident upon an opaque object large compared to the 
incident wavelength a shadow is iTonned. Some radiation penetrates into 
the shadow. The first quantitative analysis of this penetration effect 
for the case of a smooth object was that of G. N. Watson ^ -^ . He showed 
that the field in the shadow of a sphere consists of a sum of modes. 
Each mode decays exponentially with increasing distance from the shadow 
boundary into the shadow. Numerous authors have pursued Watson's analysis, 

considering spheres which are not opaque or which are surrounded by non-uniform 

media. Many of these investigator are described by H. Bremmer ^ -^ . Independent- 
ly W. Franz and K. Depperman ^ -^ discovered the existence of an exponentially 
decaying wave travelling around a circular cylinder. They also observed that 
this wave continues travelling into the illuminated region. These results, 
as well as those referred to above pertain to bodies of constant curvature. 
What are the corresponding results for objects of non-constant ciirvature? 

This question is answered by the geometrical theory of dlffration Introduced 
by J . B. Keller'--', which predicted that radiation travels along surface rays. 
These rays are geodesies on the surface of any object which originate at the 
shadow boundary. They continually shed diffracted rays which Irradiate the 
shadow and also enter the illuminated region. A quantitative theory of the 

field diffracted by a cylinder of arbitrary convex cross-section was constructed 

with the aid of these rays '- -^ . In this theory certain decay exponents and 

diffraction coefficients were introduced. The decay exponents detennine the 

rate of decay of the various field modes along a surface ray.. The diffraction 

coefficients determine the amplitudes of the various modes on a surface ray, 

and the amplitude of the field on the shed diffracted rays. It was assumed 
that the decay exponents and diffraction coefficients depend only upon local 
properties of the ray and the surface. By comparing the predictions of this 
theory with the results of W. Franz'- -' for the circular cylinder, the decay 
exponents and diffraction coefficients were determined. A similar analysis 
was performed for three dimensional curved objects by B. R. Levy and 
J . B . Keller ^^-^ . 

The results of the geometrical theory of diffraction have been tested 
by comparing them with the exact solutions of certain diffraction problems 
involving objects of non-constant curvature. To make this comparison it was 
necessary to expand the exact solution asymptotically for wavelength small 
compared to the dimensions of the object. This has been done for the field 
diffracted by a parabolic cylinder by S. 0. Rice ^ -^ , an elliptic cylinder 
by B. R. Levy'-^J and by R. K. Ritt and N. D. Kazarinoff L J, and for an 
ellipsoid of revolution by J. B. Keller and B. R. Levy I- -I and by R . K. Ritt 


and N. D. Kazarinof f l- -^ . In all cases the leading term in the asymptotic 
expansion agreed precisely with the results of the geometrical theory. 

We now propose to improve the geometrical theory of diffraction by an 
arbitrary cylinder so that it will also yield the next term in the asymptotic 
expansion. To this end we must determine the next terms in the expressions for 
the decay exponents and the diffraction coefficients. The previously determined 
terms involve the radius of curvature of the cylinder. The new terms will 
Involve the derivative of the radius with respect to arclength along the cross- 
sectional curve. To find the new terms we shall examine the next term in the 
asymptotic expansion of the exact expression for the field diffracted by an 
elliptic cylinder. We shall express terms of local geometrical quantities 
such as the radius of curvature and its derivative. Then we shall assimie that 

- 3 - 

the final geometrical expression is correct for an arbitrary cylinder. As a 
first test of this result, we shall show that It correctly yields the next 
term for the field diffracted by a parabolic cylinder. Of course, it also 
yields the correct term in the case of a circular cylinder. The results 
are also obtained by asymptotically solving the integral equation for the 
cylinder current . These results coincide with those obtained by general- 
izing the results obtained for the elliptic cylinder. 

The determination of these new corrections permits us to use our theory 
for longer wavelengths than could have been treated previously . The improve- 
ment resulting from the correction to the decay exponent is shown in \j] . 

2. Diffraction by an elliptic cylinder 

Let us consider the field u produced by a line source parallel to the 
generators of an elliptic cylinder. Then u is the solution of the following 

(A + k^)u = 5(1-1^) 6(n) (1) 

Ma^ =0 (2) 

lim r(iku - u ) = . (3] 

r — >oo 

For simplicity the source has been taken to lie in the plane containing the 
major axis of the ellipse. The elliptic coordinates (|,r|) are related to 
cartesian coordinates by the equations 

X = h cosh ^ cos T\ (k) 

y = h slnh t sin t) (5) 

k - 

In (k) and (5) h denotes one half the interfocal distance of the ellipses 
I = constant^ of which | = a is the cross-section of the cylinder. 

In reference [9] it is shown that on the cylinder the solution of 
(1) - (5) can he written in the form 

u(a,Ti) = (kh) Yl ^^ r '(^) TTT' 

n=l "" ^n ^""^ h/^-b V ^^^ (a) 


For large kh it has the asymptotic expansion 


The functions C and V are defined and asymptotically expanded for 
large kh in reference [9] . A breif review of the pertinent properties 
of these functions follows. 

The function V is the outgoing solution of the equation 

^"-^'^ 2 2 2 (1) 

(kh)'' (b/ - cosh'^OV^^^'' = . (7) 

V ^"-ht)^ ^^/^ 3^/5 ^-1 (, 2 _ ,^3^2^)-iA A(3i/53-W3(^)2/3^^ ^Q^ 


Here b is defined by 

vj^^'(a) = . (9) 

The functions C and A are defined by 

I ^5/^ = - I (b^^ - cosh^x)^/^ dx (10) 



- 5 

A(t) = I cos(z'^ - tz)dz . (11) 

The function C (t]) is the even solution of the equation 

c" + (kh)^(b ^ - cos^Ti)C = . (12) 

For large kh it has the asymptotic expansion 

C^^ cos[kh j (b/ - cos2Ti)l/2dT[] |(b/ - l)/(b^^ - cos^Ti)! .(13) 

We now specialize (6) to the case of plane vave incidence. To do this 

we miatiply (6) by e^'^^' 2^/'^7r''"' ^(kh cosh i )"'-/^exp [-ikh cosh t ] and let 

E -> oo . Then we obtain

In reference [9] the leading term In the asymptotic expansion of 
each of the summands In (15) was computed. In order to carry out this 
calculation It was found necessary to compute two termis In the asymptotic 
expansion of the eigenvalue b . We shall now compute a further term in 
the asymptotic expansion of each of the terms in (l5)- In order to do 
this we shall first compute another term in the asymptotic expansion of b . 
To do this ue first observe that the leading terms in the asymptotic 

expansion of V^ (l) are obtained by differentiating (8). The leading 

(1) ' 
term in the asymptotic expansion of V (|) comes from differentiating 

the Airy function A. Therefore ^ will be nearly equal to the result 

obtained In [9] so we write it in the form 


Here t, = ^(a), q is the nth root of the equation A ('l) = 0, and 6 

is an as yet undetermined correction which is small compared to unity. 

We now set b = cosh a + e and insert this expression into (lO) 
n n 

which determines ^ . In this way we obtain 

2 . 3/2 _ 22/1 (cos.a)V^ ^ 5/2 . ^'\'^'('^^'^'^*1) ^ y,

Now we Insert (l?) and the above form of b Into (9) and obtain the 

following re stilt for 5 

6 = ^ e^^/^(cosh^a . 1, sinh^a .7) . o((kh)-'^/5) . (19) 

"" 80 2^/^(sinh a cosh a)^/^(kh)^/^ 

By comparing (18) and (1T)> and using (19) for 6 . we determine t . Then 
b is given by 

T (sinh a) ' 1 (cosh a + 7)

In (20), the quantity t is defined in terms of q by 


Upon substituting (20) into (16) and asymptotically expanding the 
the integral, we obtain 

ikhG(a,p) = ikh I (cosh^a - cos^ti)^/% + i(kh)-^/5( sinh a cosh af^^ (22)

In reference [9] it was shown that the first two integrals in 
(22) have simple geometric interpretations in terms of the arclength s 
along the ellipse. To show this we let s and s be the values of s 
corresponding to t] = a and 11 = ^ respectively. Then we find that 
the first term on the right of (22) is just ik times the arclength 

ik I ds . (23) 

Similarly, the second term on the right of (22) is 

Here b(s) denotes the radius of curvature of the ellipse. 

We shall now express the third and fcirrth terms appearing on the 
right side of (22) in geometric terms. 

The third term can he written as

The fourth term is equal to

Let us now insert (22) into the expression (I5) for u(a,Ti). In 
doing so we shall utilize the geometric forms (23), (?h), (27) and (28) 


for the integrals in (22). We must also evaluate dV (a)/Sb which we 
find, by the methods of reference [9], to be given by

We shall now relate (50) to the geometric theory of diffraction presented 
in reference [5] • When this theory is applied to the present case it yields

Here p and B are respectively the decay exponent and diffraction coefficient 

of the nth mode. The leading terms p and B in the expressions for these

Upon comparing (53) and (50) we see that they are identical provided that 
the decay exponent p is given by (51) and the diffraction B (P) by 

12 - 

B fP) = B °(P) y (P) (36) 

The new results (3I) and (36) for p and B agree with the previous re- 
sults (3^) and (35) to the lowest order in k . The new value of p is 

-2h -3/4 

valid to 0(k ''^) and the new value of B to 0(k ' ). Thus they con- 
tain corrections to the previous results . 

The preceding results pertain to a hard elliptic cylinder - i.e 
one on which cki/i^n = 0. We have performed a similar calculation for 
a soft elliptic cylinder - i.e. one on which u=o. In this case we 
also find corrections to the decay exponents and to the diffraction 
coefficients. For the decay exponents we obtain

Here t = 6 <Le ' and q is the nth root of the equation 
A(%,) = 0. For the diffraction coefficients we find

given in reference [5] ^ as _ 

B^°(P) = n^A 2IA 6-2/5 ^-l/l2f-^'(^)-j-l ^i.M ^1/6 (35) 


The new results (37) and (39) contain corrections to the previous 
results, as in the hard case. 

We now assume that the results (31) and (36) apply to any hard 
cylinder and that (37) and (38) apply to any soft cylinder. Of course 
the cylinder must have a smooth cross section . As a first check on 
these results we see that when b = (31) and (37) agree with the 
results (A17a) and (AlTb) of W. Franz ^ -' for a circular cylinder. 

5. Diffraction by a parabolic cylinder . 

As a check on the higher order corrections to the decay exponents 
and diffraction coefficients which were derived in Section 2 we now 
consider the problem of diffraction by a parabolic cylinder. Our 
solution will closely parallel that of S . 0. Rice L -' . However, we 
find it more convenient to use parabolic cylinder functions which differ 
from his and hence we will rederive his results. We again consider the 
problem of evaluating the field on the surface of a hard parabolic 
cylinder due to an incident plane wave. For convenience we first 
consider the diffraction problem for an incident cylindrical wave and 
then obtain the plane wave result by a limiting procedure. 

To formulate the diffraction problem we take the z axis of an 
(x,y,z) rectangular coordinate axis to be parallel to the generators 
of the parabolic cylinder. In the (x,y) plane we introduce parabolic 
coordinates {i,T]) through 

X = ^Ti

y = 2(^ "^ ) •

Here t| > and -oo < | < od . The parabolic cylinder is defined by 

■n = constant = n . The line source is located at y = 0, x = x , i.e.,

P = n = a = X . The wave fiinction u(|,ri) then satisfies the equation

u,, + u + k (I + T] )u = 5(^-a)S(Ti - a) . (2]

In addition u satisfies the boundary condition 

u^(a,0 = 0, (5) 

and the Sommerfeld radiation condition 

llm r( iku - u ) = 

Wow to find u we first note that the product 0(5)t(Ti) satisfies (2) 
with the delta f^lnctions replaced by zero if and \|r satisfy the ordinary 
differential equations 

ilf" - k^(b^ - j]^U = (5) 

0" + k^(b2 + 1^)0 = 0. (6) 

Here b is an arbitrary separation constant. We next note that for an 

infinite set b of values of b^ there exist solutions of (5), ^^(ti), 
n '■'■ 

which are 'outgoing ' and for which 

Since the polar coordinate variable r is equal to i +r\ /2 we take the out- 
going condition on i to mean that as tj -> 00 ^ \|r -> Ae ^ ' . Here and in 
the following A will denote a generic amplitude function.

We next assume that the ^ {t\) are complete and express u as

By exactly the same calciilation as was carried out in reference 
[9] it is easy to show that 


f i (ti)* (ti) = - 6 (2k^ )"^ 'I' (ti ) 4: t'(n ) • (8)

Here 5 is the Kronecker delta and S/Sb \Jr (t] ) is the value of S/(^b\|r (t]) 

evaluated at b = b and ri = t] . Thus upon substituting (7) into (2) 

miiltiplying by \lr {t\) , integrating from t] to cd , and making use of (8) 

we find that ^ satisfies

To solve (9) we first characterize the solutions of (6) by means 
of their asymptotic expansions as k — > 00 . As k -> 00 there exist

It is thus apparent that as | — > oo, is the outgoing solution of (6), 

while as | — >-oo , is the outgoing solution of (6). Since the variable 

I takes on both positive and negative values, we see that for | > | the 

solution of (9) is proportional to (l) , while for ^ < | the solution 

of (9) is proportional to (l)- These conditions together with the 

jump conditions imposed by the delta function allow a unique determination 

of ^ (I ) . We then find that for ^ < |

A simple calculation shows that the element of arclength along the parabola, 
ds, is given by 

ds = (1^ + Ti/)^/2 |d|| ■ (27) 

Thus the first term in the exponent in (26) is ikt, since | is negative. 
Similarly, we find that the radius of curvature of the parabola, b, is given

Upon using (27) and (28) a simple calculation shows that the exponent in

Here and y are defined by (51) and (52) of Section II. Upon applying 
the geometric theory of reference [5] to the present case it is easy to show 
that the geometric construction agrees with (26) to lowest order in k 
Again we have in (26) higher order corrections to the diffraction coefficients 
B (P) and the decay exponents P as given by equations (5^) and (55) of 
Section II. These corrections are identical with those given by equations (51) 
and (56) of Section II.

k . Integral equation method . 

We will now derive the asymptotic expansion of each mode of the diffracted 
field on an arbitrary convex cylinder by a different method. In this method 
we begin with an integral equation and obtain a formal asymptotic solution 
of it. This asymptotic solution coincides with the expression for a mode 
given by the geometric theory of diffraction^ with the corrected decay 
exponents and diffraction coefficients found in section 2. This independent 
derivation, which follows the procedure used by W. Franz and K. Depperman ^ ^ 
in the case of a circular cylinder, confirms our previous result. 

We consider the two dimensional problem of finding a function u(x,y) 
satisfying the following equations 

(V^ + k^)u =0 In D (l) 

bu/hn = on C (2) 

lim rl/2(|^ _ .j^^) ^ Q _ (3) 


Here C is a given simple smooth convex curve with a piecewise continuous 
second derviative. If C is closed, D denotes its exterior. If C is open 
and extends to infinity, D denotes the non-convex portion of the plane, 
bounded by C . 

From (l) - (3) it follows that on C, u satisfies the following integral 

u(s) = -i j u(s')^ H^^) [kr(s,s')]ds' ^ (1,) 


- 22 

Here s denotes arclength along C measured from some fixed pointy, u(s) 
is the value of u at the point s on C, r(s,s') is the distance between 
the points s and s ', and the nonnal n' points into D. 

If C is closed^ the only single-valued solution of (*+) '.s u h 0. 
If C is open, presumably the only bounded solution is also u = 0. There- 
fore if u is to represent a mode, it must be multi-valued in the former 
case, or luibounded in the latter case. Consequently we assume that on C 
a single mode u has i.he following asymptotic expansion for large values of k 

u(s) '^ exp 


iks + ) V (s)k 
'- — -, n 



The coefficients v (s) are to be determined by requiring (5) to satisfy [W) 
asymptotically . 

Before inserting (5) into {h) , we note that for large values of k the 

function m> ' rkr(s, s ' )1 /^n' has the asymptotic expansion 
o *- 

Sh^^^ [kr(s,s'] 

^ ,2k 1/2 i(kr + «A) ^ (-lf( r^ _ m+ l/2 . 

The symbol (0,m) is defined by 

(O.m) = p (| + m)/m! P (| " "i) • ^^'■ 

Now we insert (5) and (6) into {h) and then divide by the left hand side of 
the resulting equation. In this way we obtain the equation 

- 23 


/\v/o.^l/2 ( ar -1/2

r 00 _^/ 
X exp [lk(r-s-s '31 exp Yl ^ ' (v (s') - v (s) 




In order to determine the v (s) from (8) we first expand the 
Integral in (8) asymptotically for large values of k. We perform 
this expansion by using the concept of stationary phase. The 
derivative of the phase of the integrand is 1 + dr/ds', which 
vanishes if dr/ds' = -1. This condition is satisfied only at s ' = s, 
and then only if dr/ds ' denotes the one sided derivative computed 
with s ' < s . Thus to evaluate the integral we expand the integrand 
in the one sided neighborhood s ' < s of the point s' = s. For this 
purpose we use the following expansions which are derived in the 

= J1 <^„(s)(s-s') 


-1/2 s,/^„. . _ <hl (s-s')l/2£ p^^'3)(s-s')^

- 2k - 

We now Insert (9) - (ll) Into (8), making use of the explicit 
values of p , c , Cp and c . We also expand v_ (s') in a power series 
about the point s' = s. Then (8) assumes the form 

5jtiA / M, iQ n1/2 f / ,>l/2 r ik/c (s) f ,x3 
l^e^ / '<(s)(k/8rt) / (s-s'j ' exp ok^ (s-s')^

The ftinctlon F(k,s,s') appearing in (l2) is defined "by 

F(k,s,s') = exp

In (13) V (s) denotes the m-th derivative of v (s). 

To complete the asymptotic evaluation of the integral we introduce 
the new variable t by means of the definition 

3_3. =e-/6f^2^1^/\ 


When (1^) Is used in (15), it shows that F(k, s^s') has an expansion of 
the form 

- 25 

F(k,s,s')^l+ Yi k'""/^ b^(t,s) . (15) 



We next define a(s) by the equation 

v_^(s) =a(s)(K(s))2/5(24)-l/5 eW6 _ (^gj 

Finally ve insert (l^) - (l6) into (12)^ which becomes 

l^i(3A)^/' f tl/2^-"t-t ^^^g k-"/5 Wt,s))dt. (17) 
/ n=l 

Upon comparing coefficients of the various powers of k in the asymptotic 
form of the integral equation (17), we obtain the following set of equations 

00 ., 

.,,/ ^l/2 f ,1/2 -at-t^ ,, _ /_QN 

1 - i(3/n) ' t ' e dt = (I8) 


^1/2 ^-at-t' t (t,s)dt =0, n = 1, 2, ... (19) 

From these equations we shall determine the coefficients v (s). 

W. Franz'- -^ has shown that the left side of (18) can be rewritten 
in terms of the Airy function A defined in equation (ll) of section 2. 
Thus (18) becomes 

- 26 

iJt/5 \ / o"i'^/5 

12 -W6 ,■ . <- J W. ^^ a = . (20) 



175 " M" -T75 

The appropriate value of a is determined by the vanishing of the A' 
factor in (20). If we denote by q the roots of the equation A'(q )=0, 
then the values a of a are given by 

a = a = -e 

l«/5 1,1/3 q^ . (21) 

It vill be useful to introduce the function h(a) defined by 

h(a) = t 

-1/2 ^-at-t5 ^^ _ (22) 

Franz '- J has shown that 

and that h satisfies 

h'"(a) = - I h(a) - I h'(a) . ■ (2^+) 


To determine the consequences of (l9) we must first compute the b 


We shall calculate only b and b . To do so we substitute (ih) and (l6) 
into (15), expand the exponential functions and multiply together the 
resulting series in powers of k ' . In this way we obtain 

-iit/6 /„, sl/3 K \ (-2 ■ A ^ a ^2 h\ . ^,

When (25) is inserted into (19) an equation for v is obtained. This 
equation contains integrals of the form 


j t^-1/2 e-^^-* dt = (-l)V^)(a). 


In (27) the Integral has been expressed in terms of the n-th derivative of 
h(LL) which is defined by (22). Thus from (19) we find that the right hand 
side of (25) must vanish when t is replaced by (-1) h^''^ (a). This yields 

(l-u) - 


I h'"(a) - h^^^(a) = 0. (28) 

By using (2^1) we find that 

,(IV), V _ 1 V,, _ 2: ^,. 

h^^'^(a) = -ih' -^h" (29) 

h^V\a) =f8h+|- h' -|h" (30) 

When (2^) and (30) are used in (28), the following expression for v results 

o 6 k 


Upon integrating (31) we finally obtain for v the expression 

V = log ■<-' + 5 . (32) 


Here 5 is an Integration constant. 

The analysis of (19) for "the case n = 2 proceeds in exactly the same 
way. In this case we obtain the condition that the right hand side of (26) 
vanishes when t is replaced by (-1) h^ '(a) . In order to simplify 
the resulting expression we must express the sixth through ninth derivatives 
of h In terms of h, h', and h" . Upon doing this we find 

t * 

In order to avoid writing cumbersome equations we denote by b the right 

hand side of (26) with t^ replaced by (-1)""^"^ h^"'^"^^(a). 

- 29 

,(VIII)._|,.I..2^,,|5,„ .|!,., (35) 

We also note that 

h"(a) = - I h(a). (37) 

This result follows upon differentiating (23) twice^ then using the 
equation satisfied by A(x) 

A + I A = 0, (38) 

and finally noting that when a is defined by (2l) 

Al^) .0. (59) 

We now insert the preceding relations for the derivatives of h, 
together with (31) and (37) into b . We then find that the coefficient 
of h' vanishes and that the equation bp = may be solved to yield

We next make use of (2l) of this section and (21) of section 2 and set 

K = b = the radius of curvature of C. Then a straightforward calculation 

shows that (4o) may be written as 


^1 = 3^ ^.■^/n^.-vn^-

Let us now combine our results (l6)^ (21), (32), and (4l). By 

Inserting them into (5) we obtain the asymptotic expansion of u(s) 


on the cylinder C up to and including terms in k

Here E denotes an arbitrary constant. 

Let us now compare the result (^2) vith the expression for a mode 
given by the geometric theory of diffraction [5] • That theory yields 
for u a single term of the sum in (33) of section 2. Let us insert into 
that equation the improved decay exponents (31) and diffraction coefficients 
(36). Then we find that each term of (33) coincides with (^2) provided 
that the product of the constant coefficients in (33) is equated to the 
constant E in (^2). This agreement between the two methods of obtaining 
the improved decay exponents and diffraction coefficients again confirms 
the results of section 2. The method of the present section can also be 
modified to apply to soft cylinders, on which u = 0. 

- 52 - 


In order to calculate the quantity r(s,s') in the neighborhood of 
s = s ' we first ohserve that if x(s) is the position vector to the curve 
C, then 


r = 


(x(s) - x(s-)) . (i; 

By Taylor ' s theorem 

oo ■'(n)/ X 

x(s')-x(s)=^ {s<- sf ^ /" ' ' • (2) 


Thus, upon taking the dot product of (2) with itself we find 

? = }_ (s'- s) b . 



p- 1 ^(n)/ V -^Cp-n), 
Y ^( s)- X I 

n: (p-n)l

Since s is arclength along C we have 

x(s). x(s) =1, _ (5) 


x(s).x(s) = 0. (6) 

- 53 - 

From the Frenet equations of differential geometry we have 

x(s) = KK X - K X ' (7) 

Upon using (5), (6), and (7) recursively to obtain the higher derivatives 
of x(s) in terms of x(s) and x(s) we see that b can be expressed in terms 
of K and its derivatives . In this way we find 


2 . h 

- K ~ KK - 1 2 1 K 

b^ = 1; b^ = 0; b^ = — ; b^ = ^ J ^6 = T5 ^ -To^'^-'Wo 

Then upon taking the square root of the right hand side of (3) we find

c^ - b^, ^2' ^y ^3 ~ 2 > % ' 2 ' ""5 " ^2 8 '' • 

From (8) and (lO) the entries for c in Table I are obtained. 

In order to calculate r ' Sr/Sn ' we note that the unit normal to 

C at s' is K (s') x(s') = V (s') and hence 

l^='(?)-V-)=^ . (11) 

Thus by making use of (2) and the Taylor expansion of v (s') about s = s' 
we obtain

Again upon using the Frenet equations recursively the coefficients f

Now by applying the binomial theorem to (3) we find 



^-5/2 = (s- s')-5/2 (bg - f b^(s-s')^ + I b^(s-s')5 + ...) . (15) 

Thus upon multiplying (15) and (l2) we find

Thus from (8)^ (l^)^ and (17) we obtain the values of p given in Table I. 

Upon using (9) and the values of (0,m) given in section ^ it is a simple 

matter to calculate the values of B and 6^ as given In Table I and to

conclude that P (s-s')" = o (k"^/^) f^-^ n ,/ 0, -1 and s-s ' = 0(k"'^'^)-
